I think there was a problem that was fixed in later versions of Python, so Python 2.6.4 or later should work. Let me check it again when I return home, and I'll update you with the latest status.


thanks; we need to establish the correct start point for any further work. I
have a build for win32 that seems to be pyfribidi2 based, but I see various
assertions about the need for pyfribidi2 which appear to mean we should use
pyfribidi going forwards etc etc.
